Default 500 Calorie Diet

I tried this....for two days. Well, I tried a version of it. I did NOT get the injections that come with the diet. I just read about it online and limited my days calorie intake to 500. First off, that's hard to do! Second off, you feel horrible by the end of the day.

I don't recommend it. It's fast weight loss with overall negative results. The slow, long lasting methods are definitely best!

3fatchicks does not support a very low calorie (VLC) diet unless it is under strict medical supervision.
Slow and stead is best.

Calories are the measure of how much energy the nutrients, carbs, protein and fats in the food can provide your body with. Limiting your intake to such a low amount will leave you feeling very tired and sluggish. Your body needs the energy from food to do EVERYTHING! Pumping blood, breathing, walking....everything!!

I would limit my calorie intake to this low an amount. I think 1200 is the lowest thats recommended.

keeping all respect for 3FC rules about VLC diets......and the injections will shall not be named--- the reason you take the injections with the 500 cal is to prevent sever muscle loss, which is what a 500 cal diet does. You DONT want to lose all your muscle.... not smart think you figured that out though

Yeah, I won't be doing that ever again! Today, my breakfast alone was around 500, and I'm feeling very good, even after my 30 minute gazelle workout. I plan for lunch and dinner to be about the same.

that does NOT sound healthy. How do you eat so little?? I have to stop myself from eating over 1600 calories a day and i can STILL go for more...
i have tried to limit myself to 1200 and i cant do it.. im starved and i just feel grumpy by the end of the day...

is the muscle loss what ketosis is suppose to mean?

Again, we don't support VLC diets because they can be dangerous and your doctor is the person to talk to, not the Internet.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
